Dad’s join us in our first longhouse canoe trip along the upper Cuyahoga river. This event will be replacing our fall campout for 2020. Our canoe trip will be held at Camp Hi in Hiram Ohio, just a short 45-minute drive east. Camp Hi is a family owned property that has been offering canoe trips along the Cuyahoga since 1928 with a goal of providing an “Adventure in Your Own Backyard” experience.
For our experience we will have access to canoes and tandem kayaks. Each seaworthy vessel must include an adult (18 and over), with capacities of 3 for canoes and 2 for tandem kayaks. As we will be traveling unsupervised it is imperative that an adult must be in each boat. Fathers with 3 or more children will need to make arrangements with anther dad that has brought a single child. We will only have access to 10 tandem kayaks, these will be reserved for our graduating 4th graders (you may still choose a canoe if you wish). We will have an option for a 2 mile trip (1hr) or 5 mile trip (2hr).
This portion of the Cuyahoga river is designated as a State Scenic River, a gently flowing stream that is usually 3 feet deep. Resulting in a very easy trip down river.

2:00 pm : We depart Camp Hi in an orderly fashion. Kayaks are reserved for our graduating 4th graders. There will be assigned two lead ships that will be responsible to mark the end of the 2 mile and 5 mile trip. We are anticipating launching all craft may take 30 min to 1 hr.
